Whereas, player of the year Jaycie Johnson scored eighteen points for the Eagles, Alyssa Atkerson added ten points, and Marion Walker Coleman scored nine; and
Whereas, the team's All Region players include Alyssa Atkerson, Bailey Taylor, and Jaycie Johnson. All State players were Alyssa Atkerson, Marion Walker Coleman, Bailey Taylor, and Jaycie Johnson; and
Whereas, in a sport that demands strength, speed, and determination, Head Coach Jason Haltiwanger and his skilled coaching staff capitalized on their own athletic ability and training to forge a championship team and teach these athletes lessons that will prove invaluable through life both on and off court; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate appreciate the pride and recognition that the Richard Winn Academy girls basketball players have brought to their school and community and look to hearing of their continued accomplishments in the days ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
